2019 Copa America Finals Soccer Betting Analysis

No doubt, Peru is a much different team than the one that fell 0-5 to Brazil in group play. The Peruvians put it all together in the 3-0 victory over Chile on Wednesday. But although Peru is a much better team now than they were in the semifinal win against Chile, it’s difficult to see them beating Brazil straight up on July 7.

Brazil is good enough to win the World Cup. They should beat Peru in regulation. However, that’s not the best wager on this match. Brazil will be without Willian after he suffered an injury in the win over Argentina.

Willian is one of the keys to Brazil’s offense. The best wager is on Peru on the handicap. The Peruvians are at +1 ½ -119. That’s the play to make. Peru will keep this close. Back them on the handicap versus Brazil in the Copa America Finals.

2019 Copa America Finals Pick: Peru +1 ½ -119
